Data from this study included 373,293 men and women 25-70 years old from 10 European countries. The aim was to look at the relationship between nut consumption (including peanuts) and body weight change over 5 years.
Key Findings: Compared to those who did not consume nuts, those who consumed the most nuts gained less weight over 5 years. Nut consumers also had a 5% lower risk of becoming overweight or obese.
